I think it's only fair to point out that the Buddies franchise also started with a good movie about a dog that didn't talk, though Air Bud was not nearly as good as Marley & Me.

I hated Marley & Me. Turned it off mid-way.

This, from everything I've read, is an absolute no go for me. EVER. the combination of 2 hated franchises. blah.

I wonder if John Grogan specifically signed off on this or it's a result of small print in his original contract. Does the movie at least remember that Marley was a puppy in the late 1980s?

I heard that the first film was extremely manipulative. I wouldn't know, because I will never see it.

It depends what you mean by manipulative. The story is about the relationships between humans and pet dogs, which makes it sentimental by nature, but it doesn't use you-will-cry-now music in the score or anything.

G, i felt it was a bit manipulative. could be more, but add in Owen Wilson being borderline insufferable, even by Owen Wilson standards, and it's...not for everyone.

Hachi is MUCH, MUCH more manipulative. THAT one is tough to watch.

Hmm. I enjoyed 'Marley and Me' very much. Quite touching, actually.

This sequel though, really makes me think. Any room left for a trilogy?
